For those attending, please come with a current developmental challenge that you are prepared to share with others.

Code: PCC/22/514 Using Motivational Interviewing to support Reunification

Motivational Interviewing is a framework of intervention, brought together in the 1990s by Professor William Miller and Professor Stephen Rollnick. It is an approach designed to work with those most resistant to change or stuck in entrenched behaviours. The premise of Motivational Interviewing is that motivation is not a ‘fixed state’ that a person does or does not have. Rather, motivation ebbs and flows depending on many factors such as circumstances, mood and so forth. The skilled practitioner (or manager) will harness whatever very little motivation there might be, and help it move in the right direction. The Motivational Interviewing approach borrows in from other sources such as Carl Rogers’ person-centred counselling; Socratic thinking and Prochaska & DiClemente’s Cycle of Behaviour change.

Code: PCC/22/502 Resilience & Wellbeing Awareness Seminar for Shared Lives Carers

This is a 2 hour facilitated session.

The facilitator will send you the event link shortly before the session.

Work can be rich with opportunity. Through work we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting; never more so than in having to adapt recently to the profound changes brought about by Covid-19.


Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life, you will have developed coping mechanisms that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can sometimes make situations worse. What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:


• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
